Fossil Guide: What Are Fossils?
Buried Items Found When Dug Up
Fossils are buried items that you can find when you dig through the star-shaped cracks on the ground. They are blue, circular rocks with shell & star designs.
Limited Ground Cracks Per Day
In New Leaf, there are only a limited number of cracks that appear on the ground on a daily basis. This needs to be confirmed if it's also applicable in New Horizons.
Can Be Donated, Displayed, Or Sold
Fossils can be donated to the museum, displayed outside or in your house, or sold to the shops. You can do whatever you want with them!
How To Get Fossils?

1. Equip Shovel From Inventory

2~3. Dig Up Star-Shaped Cracks
When your shovel is equipped, search the island for star-shaped cracks. These can hold different items but can also have fossils buried underneath them!
Fossils Are Unidentified Blue Rocks
When you dig up a fossil, you won't know what it is initially. It will be a circular blue rock with some shell & star designs.
Cracks Appear Daily & Are Random
There are a certain number of cracks that appear every day on your island and their contents are random. So be sure to dig them up every day!
4. Assess Fossils In Museum
After digging up a fossil, head to the museum and talk to Blathers. He'll assess the fossil and tell you if you've already donated that fossil or if it's a duplicate.
Donate Or Sell Fossils
After assessing the fossil, you can either donate or sell them. Fossils sell for lots of Bells so make sure to bring them to shops, if you're low on cash.Check Out How To Farm Bells Fast!
Blathers Doesn't Accept Duplicates
If you've already donated a type of fossil to Blathers, he won't take it anymore. You can sell these or display them in your house or outside instead!
